Give your Christmas tree a hint of Utrecht by hanging baubles from Noest. This Utrecht-based company gives condemned trees a second lease of life by making all kinds of unusual products from the wood, including Christmas baubles. They are available in the shape of the Dom Tower, Miffy, the Utrecht skyline and one of those dreadful Christmas jumpers. The species of tree is stamped onto every bauble, along with the location of the tree and where it stood before it was felled. So your baubles aren’t just unique, they’re also very sustainable.

> You can buy the baubles at the VVV Tourist Information Office (Domplein 9), the Utrecht Made Shop (Twijnstraat 53), Pop-up Gaard (Wenenpromenade 60) and in the web shopnoesthout.nl/shop
